Janet Jackson Rocks Super Short Hair: Love It or Hate It?

Bye-bye long, wavy tresses! Janet Jackson was snapped out and about in London yesterday sporting super short hair, making her the latest A-lister to join the increasingly long list of celebrities who are foregoing their long locks in favor of boyish crops. The iconic performer debuted the gelled-back look while dining in the British city, where she is on hand to promote her latest film, Why Did I Get Married, Too? While Janet’s had a few modish bobs in the past, we’ve never seen her go quite this short or boyish.  And though the new look is a far cry from the natural curls and shoulder-length styles that she’s been rocking recently, we aren’t opposed to the singer’s new low-maintenance style. Tell us: What do you think about Janet Jackson’s newly cropped slicked-back look? –David Yi

Glad to see she finally got tired of the weaves. It’s a nice change.

I LOVE IT! She is doing like Solange Knowles did, she’s freeing herself from HAIR SLAVERY!
She didn’t just cut it, she TOOK IT OFF!
Now, if her head itches, she can scratch her head instead of Patting it!
FREE AT LAST huh Janet?!?

It’s very sad how you can’t be a Black woman with long hair and not be accused of wearinf a wig or weave. You never see any of that said about any White or Latina celeb. and they wear weaves & wigs too. How do you fight stereotypes when we stereotype each other?

She looks great with this new hairdo and a slim figure! And she looks so much like her late brother, the beloved Michael!
